i am trying to load blob to a column for testing Oracle text. following is what I did-

CREATE TABLE my_docs (
  id    NUMBER(10)     NOT NULL,
  name  VARCHAR2(200)  NOT NULL,
  doc   BLOB           NOT NULL
)
/

ALTER TABLE my_docs ADD (
  CONSTRAINT my_docs_pk PRIMARY KEY (id)
)
/

CREATE SEQUENCE my_docs_seq;

CREATE OR REPLACE DIRECTORY documents AS 'C:work';

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE load_file_to_my_docs (p_file_name  IN  my_docs.name%TYPE) AS
  v_bfile      BFILE;
  v_blob       BLOB;
BEGIN
  INSERT INTO my_docs (id, name, doc)
  VALUES (my_docs_seq.NEXTVAL, p_file_name, empty_blob())
  RETURN doc INTO v_blob;

  v_bfile := BFILENAME('DOCUMENTS', p_file_name);
  Dbms_Lob.Fileopen(v_bfile, Dbms_Lob.File_Readonly);
  Dbms_Lob.Loadfromfile(v_blob, v_bfile, Dbms_Lob.Getlength(v_bfile));
  Dbms_Lob.Fileclose(v_bfile);

  COMMIT;
END;
/

EXEC load_file_to_my_docs('doc1.doc');

I am getting the following error

*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-22288: file or LOB operation FILEOPEN failed
The system cannot find the path specified.
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_LOB", line 504
ORA-06512: at "SCOTT.LOAD_FILE_TO_MY_DOCS", line 10
ORA-06512: at line 1

The directory and documents are available in the system. So what could be the reason for this error. Kindly help me and thanks in advance.

Hi,
If your working in client and server mode this may be a problem.
The error is in this line of code CREATE OR REPLACE DIRECTORY documents AS 'C:work';
here documents is logical name for physical directory c:work
so this c:work physical directory should be there in the server side where the oracle server is installed not in client machine
and one more your doc1.doc should be in the c:work directory
